During this time of Social Distancing, The Presbyterian Church of the Good Shepherd is holding in-person services in the sanctuary at 9:30 am on Sunday mornings. Seating in the sanctuary is limited due to social distancing and mask requirements. There is an overflow area in Fellowship Hall. Again, seating in Fellowship Hall is limited due to social distancing and mask requirements. We broadcast our Sunday Service on Facebook Live at 9:30 am. We also post the service on YouTube at about 11:00 am.
Plans for expanding our service times are being formulated: an early CAYA (Come As You Are) service, in Fellowship Hall, at 9:05 am and a later worship service, in the Sanctuary, at 10:55 am. Scheduled start date is May 2nd. (Please check the church calendar for the precise times and dates of the change.)
The Presbyterian Church of the Good Shepherd (USA) is a growing congregation. We gather together from across the Melbourne/Palm Bay area to witness to the love of God in Jesus Christ. While some are lifelong Presbyterians, some come from other Christian traditions and backgrounds, or no religious background at all. We welcome the seeker, the devout, and the skeptic alike as we gather to learn, serve, and grow as disciples. We are confident you will find a way to experience and share God’s love at Good Shepherd. Come and See! Join Us!
Thank you for visiting our website. As pastor of Good Shepherd, it is my hope that you will enjoy it as you learn more about our community of faith. Our doors are wide open to people from all backgrounds, regardless of where they are on their spiritual journey. Together, we are striving to become the kind of church described in the Bible, where there is relevant teaching, heart-felt worship, honest friendships, constant prayer, compassionate care for those in need, and many opportunities to serve others. We strive to have the kind of contagious Christianity that can make a difference in our world today.
You are cordially invited to join us this coming Sunday as our church family gathers to draw near to God through Worship.
Yours in Christ,
EASTERTIDE is the season on the Christian calendar that begins with Easter Sunday and ends with Pentecost Sunday. The season lasts for 50 days. It offers us the time and opportunity to ponder the meaning of resurrection: what it means to us as a community of faith, and how it can guide us in our life path -preparing us for Pentecost, the day the disciples were empowered with the Holy Spirit.
These two seasons definitely prepare us.
Eastertide: “Come and see.
Pentecost: “Go and tell!”
Every child has a story. God is dealing with every kid, regardless of how many times they come to church. Treat every Sunday like it is the only Sunday that some kid has. Did they hear about Jesus? Did they feel loved? Did someone ask about them? Nurture these precious children! Whether they are wee little ones or teenagers, we have programs for them all!
RUMMAGE SALE: Our annual Rummage Sale will be on Saturday, May 1st, from 8 am to 2 pm.

The Music Program
Good Shepherd held a Christmas Eve Service this year which was attended by congregants who observed all Covid protocols. It was a celebration that the church has every year. Everyone enjoyed the singing of carols, the ringing of the bells, the telling of the Christmas Story, and the camaraderie in the sanctuary.

At the Presbyterian Church of the Good Shepherd
Our mission is to help connect people to faith
A Shepherd leads, cares for, and loves his sheep. The sheep knows the voice of their shepherd, they follow him, and him alone. Even the lost lamb is found and carried in the loving arms of his caregiver. At the Presbyterian Church of the Good Shepherd we listen to the voice of the Good Shepherd, Jesus Christ; we follow the will of our creator God; we are empowered to be obedient sheep through the Holy Spirit. Jesus commanded us to love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, and mind, and to love one another as he has loved us. That’s our challenge – lead, care for, love, and bring home God’s children. We invite you to join us as we journey and grow in our community of obedient and loving sheep under the care of the Good Shepherd.
